Dr. Andrea Buchholz, PhD, RD
From the tender age of 12, I knew I was destined for a career in nutrition. After working as a clinical dietitian in neurotrauma rehabilitation, I pursued a PhD in Nutritional Sciences at the University of Toronto, and two post-doctoral fellowships (Vanderbilt University Nashville TN, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison). In 2010, while on research leave, I was a visiting scholar at Purdue University in West Lafayette IN.
I am a Registered Dietitian with a research interest in body composition and energy metabolism. I am the Director of the University of Guelph Body Composition and Metabolism Lab (www.uoguelph.ca/bodycomp), and which houses a BOD POD, a dual energy x-ray absorptiometer and an indirect calorimeter. [Please note the lab infrastructure is used for research purposes only; the lab is not open to the public].
